, beloved both at langley and respected on the hill would do well sort of in the tradition of leon panetta now the defense secretary. the president's going to have lots of good choices. >> and john brennan, counterterrorism advisor formerly of the cia, his name has been mentioned as well. i don't believe there's been a female appointed the cia director. >> there hasn't been. >> there has been in britain known as m. >> no female directors of fbi, cia or directors of defense. >> this might be something the president would want to do. >> she'd be great. >> we'll see. thank you very much. >>> president obama says a majority of americans agree with him on how to reduce the deficit. but the house speaker john boehner is not among them. we're going to hear what both men are saying about approaching that so-called fiscal cliff. plus, why many republicans were convinced mitt romney would win. [ female announcer ] today, jason is here to volunteer to help those in need. when a twinge of back pain surprises him. morning starts in high spirits, but there's a growing pain in his lower back. as lines gr
. at leon panetta's defense secretary's request the president has put the nomination of general allen to be the new nato commander in europe on hold, pending a pentagon investigation. but jay carney insisted that the president still has highest regard for general john allen. >> the president thinks very highly of general allen and his service to his country as well as the job he's done in afghanistan. >> bill: but the question remains if the white house didn't know and the other questions that jay carney was getting yesterday were about the protocol for the fbi. should the fbi have told the president sooner and jay carney kept saying look, the fbi's got its protocol when it is doing an investigation like this. they followed their protocol and we're not going to demand they change their protocol or whatever. but there are a lot of questions being raised is -- over the fact that the white house was not informed, members of the -- leaders of the intelligence committees in the house and senate were not informed by the fbi. bu
clinton, leon panetta, maybe his attorney general. the president demands two things, diversity and excellence. and now, replacing his cia director will be part of that mix. some people in the pentagon, in the intelligence committee resented him a bit. he was a super star, he performed at a very high level. one of the most excellent people in his profession. they need to find somebody to replace him that's equally as excellent. >> is there a political fallout for the president or any others? washington? >> i think it could relate to benghazi. one of the things that goes on, when there is a national security scandal or crisis, is there is tensions between people in the intelligence world, political people at the white house, and the suspicion for a lot of people is that things were being covered up, not fully discussed. no doubt the cia is at the center of that. two of the people that tragically died were part of the cia, so there could be some controversial and from a point of view, why did we get it back as late as we did, his resignation, as shocking as it is, teases some of t
clinton leon panetta and ken salazar. more bill after the break. stay with us. we'll be right back. >>oh really? >>tax cuts don't create jobs. the golden years as the conservatives call them, we had the highest tax rates, and the highest amount of growth, and the highest amount of jobs. those are facts. >>"if you ever raise taxes on the rich, you're going to destroy our economy." not true! >> announcer: broadcasting across the nation, on your radio and on current tv, this is the "bill press show." >> bill: president obama is back in the white house. guess what. he's going to stay there for the next four years. hello, everybody. still with a big smile on our face and still celebrating this big victory from tuesday with all of you. we're coming to you live from our nation's capital. i expected the president to hold a news conference today. i was all ready to go down there but maybe we'll have to wait until tomorrow. we'll bring you the latest from every angle of the big victory obtuse. look at the house look at the senate. particularly
with a strong relationship with congress. if you look at who served in this job before, leon panetta and petraeus, one thing they have in common is that they both were very, very well regarded on capitol hill. their word was basically gold up there. and if they said something was happening or not happening, or that it would be resolved or gotten to the bottom of, members on both sides of the aisle pretty much took that for granted. so you'd want people that could fulfill that. former congresswoman harman would probably fit into that category, very well respected and a very well known voice on intelligence and military issues. i think the question would be whether she would want to come back from her job heading the woodrow wilson center so soon after she basically quit the congress. john brennan, the president's counterterrorism advisor, would be another choice that i think would probably be very easily confirmed on capitol hill. however, the problem is the president has really come to rely on brennan as his right hand man throughout his presidency on all the issues of counterterrori
: some of the big cabinet members. secretary clinton has said she is going to go. secretary leon panetta is likely to go at some point although he may stay through the sequestration talks which would mean $55 billion to the pentagon. those are big cabinet members and they are likely to go which will take over some dominoes inside the administration as people move up to fill those. inside the west wing, he may the have a new chief of staff. that would be his fourth that he has named. these are times when he can look at those working for him. only two cabinet members left in the first four years. he can begin to tailor his staff to what he wants to pursue. host: eric holder the attorney general has said he will stay on. guest: that is right. he has had a mixed record. he has had a mixed relationship with the white house. he would not be the easiest guy to ask to leave. if he wants to stay, i imagine he would probably stay. says this -- >> this discussion is available on the c-span is video library. we will return to more correction of "cq" "roll call 's" post-election forum. >> reminder th
. >> do republicans fear that much more than the president? >> i think secretary panetta has made it clear that he said senator cane, the cuts are not possible. not only because of what they might do to national security but they're destabilizing and they don't allow planning. you take a lot of money out of the economy with those all defense jobs out of the country. >> josh, do you think this president is going to have a successful a second term as bill clinton did on welfare reform, balancing the budget, balancing it four years in a row? do you think we're going see that type of second term? >> i think it's a little early to say that. i think there's certainty the possible for that. look, as i write in the piece, he's got leverage on the fiscal cliff. i think there's good reason to think that a grand bargain is possible. it's certainly more likely than it was a year ago. we're closer now. the conditions are there for that to happen. so if he were to cap off his second term with historic tax and entitlement reform that would be a big deal. another thing, we're seeing will this already, the
-- secretary panetta. they have been more effective. some of the strikes have gone down lately. i do n know how to read into that. does that necessarily mean we're increasing that pair militarization -- paramilirization of the agency? petraeus suggested this ca position and gates embraced it in november and december and did not ta to obama about it until january. the first time they talk about the position was in march. the president had been mulling it over. i never got the sense from him, from the president, from petrae or anyone on the national securit council that he would be put there to militarize the agency. petraeus is thinking how the defense department is shying away from this large scale boots on the ground operation and gates said the next leader who decides to commit to one of these operations should have their friend -- heads examined. petraeus is thinking even if -- as he goes to the agency, that is the future of warfare. i would be speculating if i guess the president had an intention of turning the agency into an oss. they are keeping up their drone tacks and they are showing s
